I have my integrated graphics disabled in bios so that doesn't even show up in device manager, I wouldn't think the game would have an issue there.
I'm running the original 4 cd's version of the game, I've had it since it came out. Just haven't pulled it off the shelf in quite some time.
I -may- have found the issue. Out of all the stuff on that second post I did all but one, I updated via the game launcher instead of downloading a separate patch. I will uninstall and try a clean install and update this thread with my findings. Thanks!
